Paradise is defined as an ideal place or state, but ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal asks, “what is paradise to you?” Their current international Call for Artists and Writers is paradise-themed so people of all ages from all around the world can share their visions.
Entries for ArtAscent‘s call may include two and three-dimensional media, drawings, paintings, photography, mixed media, installations, ceramics, jewelry, fabric, sculpture, fiction, poetry, short stories, and other writings. Each piece of writing must be at least 900 words.
Although many competitions are free of charge, this contest requires a ten-dollar entry fee for writers and fees as high as forty-five dollars for artists, but does not require a commission fee. Applicants must using the online entry form from ArtAscent.com.
The contest will be judged. Ten writers will be published in the ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal, through website links, and in an online juried web exhibition for two years. The one writer who wins the contest will have the opportunity to be included in ArtAscent with a profile review, along with three other applicants form other categories. Overall, forty applicants will be selected.

The writing genres include children’s, crime/thriller, drama, essay, fantasy, fiction, general, horror, mystery, poetry, romance, science fiction, and young adult. Previously published or unpublished works are eligible for entry.
